Scouting: Bruno Fernando brutalized Nebraska inside last season, finishing with 21 points, nine rebounds, five assists and two blocked shots. He's been a force again this season, and is joined by 6-foot-10 freshman Jalen Smith to give the Terps one of the longest frontcourts in the Big Ten. Nebraska will need Isaiah Roby, Tanner Borchardt and Brady Heiman to play well.

Trending: Since the loss to Minnesota, Nebraska is shooting 47 percent from three-point range (43-for-91) over its last four games. Keep that up — and force Maryland's bigs to come out of the paint and guard the three-point line — and the Huskers will have an advantage.

Forecasting: With the upcoming schedule, any wins Nebraska can rack up are golden. Especially if they come on the road. NU has played well in College Park, and this season brings its most talented team to Maryland. It's a difficult matchup with Maryland's length, but the Huskers could very well be the second-best team the Terps have seen this season, behind Virginia.
